It is a great pleasure to introduce our new IntLawGrrls contributor Dorine Llanta!
Dorine is a Legal Researcher at Women’s Initiative for Gender Justice, working specifically on the ‘Call It What It Is Campaign’ launched in December 2018. She is also a PhD Candidate at the University of Perpignan (France). Her research focuses on the repression and accountability of sexual violence in international and national settings.
Prior to her current role, Dorine worked with the Centre for International Justice of Amnesty International, based in The Hague, and focuses on ICC-related legal analysis. She participated in the organisation of Amnesty International’s side-event at the 17th Assembly of States Parties to the Rome Statute on the accountability for crimes committed in Nigeria. She also worked as a legal advisor to Asylum Access Ecuador, an NGO providing legal assistance to asylum-seekers in Ecuador, South America. Through these experiences she gained substantive expertise on the prevention and accountability for sexual and gender-based violence.
